A 17-year-old has been charged with attempted murder of a police officer after he allegedly shot at the officer from the window of a stolen vehicle.
Jeramyah Alford faces one count of attempted murder in the first degree of a peace officer after deliberation, one count of attempted murder in the first degree of a peace officer with extreme indifference, one count of prohibited use of a weapon and one count of possession of a handgun by a juvenile, according to a news release from the Denver District Attorney’s Office.
A Denver police officer in the area of South Parker Road and East Mississippi Avenue on Nov. 30 began following a vehicle after the license plate indicated the vehicle was reported stolen.
The vehicle then stopped in the middle of the street, according to the news release, and Alford allegedly climbed out the window, sat on the windowsill and fired several gunshots at the officer.
The officer was not injured.
Alford is scheduled for an advisement hearing at 8:30 a.m. Dec. 22.
